: The photograph shows six men and women standing on stepping stones across the Sandusky River. Photographer Harry Kinley stands on the opposite bank and looks across the water at the group. They are all dressed in coats and hats. Fallen autumn leaves traveling down the river have gotten caught up against the stones, creating a dam. The stones, placed in the river by early settlers, are now a part of the Stepping Stones Park in Upper Sandusky. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a traveling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
